Seven miles @ 8:20 pace with zero desire to slip and fall on ice ten days before my marathon.
I feel like I have so much more time during the taper, we were even able to sneak in a hot tub session before school.
It’s always hit or miss how these two get along, but yesterday was good, so I had to document it.
The sun peaked out for a bit, so we took advantage of that.
Being outside makes everything better.
We finished up with cake with the kid’s best friends before they had to say goodbye to each other for two weeks.
Let’s get going with some Friday Favorites:
*My dream travel shoes arrived. These were love at first sight for me. I usually try to wait a day or two to make sure I really love a pair of shoes before buying them but I bought these immediately and have zero regrets. They will match with absolutely everything I have, and they feel like pillows on my feet.
*I have a discount code for my absolutely favorite recovery tool ever. The RPM works for you with foam rolling, and I get to sit there and enjoy life. It helps to speed up recovery and lessen soreness… basically your own massage therapist. Code HUNGRYRUNNERGIRL will get you 10% off here
*I don’t know how I got signed up for this, but I love it. They send you good news each morning, and I love seeing it when I check my emails in the mornings; it starts things off on the right note.
*A really well-done 25-minute recap of the marathon trials:
*This episode with Conner! I felt so bad for him when he talked about all the stress leading up to the race, and I was just so happy everything worked out for him and Clayton. This week has been the best, with all the running podcasts putting out multiple episodes.
*I love this quote so much; it made me think about race day anxiety… We can choose what we do with it and whether it helps us to move towards our goals and growth or keeps us from trying.
Have any weekend plans?
Are there any email subscriptions that you love?
The longest trip you have ever been on?
-This one will almost be two weeks, probably my second-longest trip… My first one was when we went for a month-long vacation driving all over the United States when I was five. We visited every museum we could.
Who is running Mesa this weekend? Or a long run?
